As part of the Cognitive Raider Initiative we at The Cognitive Warrior Project would like to put together a daily list of articles of varying length that can easily be chosen from to generate conversation and to play a part in developing a more mentally agile warfighter that embraces the adaptation required for tomorrow’s battlefield.
Today’s list covers topics include both Arctic Regions, conditions in Afghanistan and more troubles in Africa.
As a reminder: The Cognitive Warrior Project is a private media site, and it is not affiliated in any way with Special Operation Forces the Department of Defense or the U.S. Government. None of the U.S. Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard, DoD or Space Force have endorsed, supported, directed, or participated in the creation of the content at this site, or in the creation of the site itself. It’s just a media site that happens to cover the U.S Military, DoD and other National Intelligence Assets.
